Pastels HenryRoché that you should have if you like Pastels.

In two sizes, the complete one and the other, more handy.

If you will work with the reals Pastels HR, it can cost you a fortune
just for few of them, then enjoy and be happy !

The 256 colors (abridge one)


and the 814 colors (the complete one)


I have only the 814 col file , is a mess in my files (different places),
but it would be easy to make the col file (256) after the image.

Nice one Dany! Thanks. By the way, one can also use any loaded image as a palette too. Once it's visible on the screen within the program one can use the color picker and sample from that image. It's very handy too because in the case of paintings where one likes the colors or one sees a particular harmony etc, one can then use that as a starting point for their own painting that they're doing in ArtRage. Or one could simply load one of the images you posted here to do the same thing. It's a handy feature. Thanks again for these great color palettes. It would work better with the higher resolution pictures of your color charts, but what a great range of colors!

The 814 is beautifully arranged and SO many colors that will be my favorites. Thank you.

I am glad you like the range of colors.
In that case the image is only a visual reference, in it you find the RGB values which are the most importent;
with the precise picker and a bit of exercise you get the precise colors .

But don't worry, I just did the palettes for you, with names also;
for me the names of the colors (and the description ) bring the colors to life and can be a poem .

I just finished my work for the two palettes;
when I added the names on it I discovered that I missed some beautiful blues in the col file,
I added them on the end of the file;
nothing is perfect;
but in case you get some time and insist to have all in order you can do it by using the two functions:
global and local colors, it takes time and is not so important .

Let me ad a think, it is about a technique mixed :
digital and traditional , some people use to give a better value to a printed image
by using all kind of traditional work;
in that particular case is very useful to do a pastel with some colors and finish it with the same related shades; this is why I tried to be as accurate as my eyes can be.
